    Why Mohammad told He was the last prophet?


    Rohit: Swami! In Quran, it is stated that Mohammad is not father of any one.
    Further it is stated there that He is the last Prophet sent by God.
    What is the inner meaning of this, if this verse is genuine statement?

    Swami: Oh Rohit! You have picked up very crucial concept of spirituality.
    This statement is original and therefore it entered your mind.
    The inner meaning of this verse is based on the angle, which you take
    For the word Mohammed, here the word Mohammed stands only
    For the external human form and not the internal eternal God.
    Islam does not agree to the concept of human incarnation.

    When Bible says the word Jesus, it means the internal eternal God.
    When the Gita says Krishna, He means the same eternal God.
    Because both Christianity and Hinduism believe God in flesh.
    We need not criticise Islam for not believing Human Incarnation,
    Because the main idea is that there is always misuse of this concept.
    The human beings claim themselves as human incarnations.
    Every human being following the philosophy of Advaita in Hinduism
    Feels that it is the Lord, this is very dangerous extrapolation.
    Even devils and demons claimed themselves as eternal God
    By doing certain miracles after achieving some super powers.

    All these dangerous misleading cases harm the devotees.
    In the name of idol worship also, priests have exploited devotees.
    They keep idols in front and rob the wealth of devotees.
    To avoid all these misleading misused concepts, Islam sorted
    To the worship of formless aspect of God, we appreciate this.
    But because of misuses we cannot deny basic system itself.
    If copying is happening, it should be arrested by taking care.
    We cannot cancel the very examination system for the fear of
    This misuse, we are not avoiding the journey by buses and trains
    Due to possibility of accidents, the human incarnation is important.

    That is the only path to reach God as said by Jesus because
    The human beings approach God only through human form.
    The devotees can get full satisfaction and full guidance only
    From the human incarnation and not from any other form of God.
    Of course, if you fear for the exploitation of this concept here,
    It is better to stick to formless God or God through statues.
    But you should be prepared for the disadvantages in the above ways.
    You will also loose the golden chance provided by God for your sake.

    Yet, Islam should be appreciated because avoiding danger is good.
    Such decision was taken by Islam depending on the circumstances
    And the atmosphere prevailed over the society during the time of Mohammed.
    We should understand the religion from the point of the circumstances
    And the environment that existed during the propagation at that time.

    But now the scientific logical analysis is well developed and one need not fear
    For the exploitation by the false human incarnations who can be easily
    Identified, so you should not avoid the system in the present circumstances.
    Islam is not a new concept to the Hinduism because in Hinduism
    The philosophy of Madhva says the same and preaches that the Lord
    Can never become the human being nor vice versa and this is also stated
    By Jesus when He told that He was the Messenger sent by God.

    Thus Islam agrees with Hinduism and Christianity in its basic concept.
    Mohammed told that He was the last prophet because He did not like
    Another false human incarnation to come and mislead and exploit the mass.
    It is only to avoid the danger of exploitation of cunning human beings.

    What is the reason for Islam not to accept the human incarnation?
    Even Mohammed said that He was only the servant of God and He did not claim
    Himself as the human incarnation, even though He Himself knows the truth
    That He is the God in Flesh like Buddha or Krishna or Jesus.
    This reason enlightens the greatness of Islam Religion, the reason is that
    Once a real human incarnation is accepted, several fraud human incarnations
    Claim themselves as God and mislead the spiritual aspirants for their selfish ends.

    In fact such concept was so much polluted and got so much diluted
    So that every human being started thinking that he himself is God.
    In Hinduism this misinterpretation rules the minds of several people
    Even today and most people think “Aham Brahmaasmi”, which means
    “I am God”, people say that service to human beings is service to God
    Because every human being is God only, Sankara condemned this concept

    Which was a religion called Loka Sevaka Matam, when Jesus was worshipped
    By a lady who was using some special scent to wash His divine lotus feet,
    A disciple told that the cost of the scent could have been used to serve the beggars
    The disciple thought that service to society is better than the personal service
    Of the Lord, but Jesus immediately replied, “Let her do this service, beggars
    Are always present in this world but I come rarely to this world”, this shows
    That the Lord is far greater than the society and the social service is valid only
    When the Lord gives permission to do so, because the saviour is the Lord
    And not the society, thus the background of Islam should be properly understood.
